SUSTAINABLE POUCHES

When it’s time to move on from an all-milk diet and parents start the process of weaning, their top priority is making sure their baby’s new nutritional needs are met. But parents are also increasingly concerned about the world in which their child will grow up. In a 2013 study, 64% of US millennial parents said that the environment has become a top priority since they became parents. At the same time, in 2014, 73kg of waste went to landfill per EU resident. With synthetic materials taking up to 1000 years to decompose, this is a major concern that needs to be addressed today for the sake of future generations. Read the rest »

SPREADING NUTRITION KNOWLEDGE & EMPOWERING BETTER HEALTH

Malnutrition is still far too common in much of the Equatorial African Region (EAR). Great progress has been made in recent years, but we know that there’s still a lot to do to ensure good health in many parts of the world. And there’s never been a better opportunity to take on the challenge and succeed, transforming the health prospects of future generations.   Read the rest »

THE KITKAT SUSTAINABILITY PROJECT

Leading brands across all industries and sectors have an incredible opportunity to use their role for the power of good. As one of the world’s most recognisable food products, KITKAT is uniquely placed to positively impact the environment and the communities in which we operate. Through the Nestlé Cocoa Plan programme, we work hard to improve the lives of cocoa farmers and the quality of their products. But now we’re looking for a partner to help us boost the initiative and take it to the next level. Read the rest »

NURTURING THE NEXT GENERATION OF FARMERS

The world is going through a time of unprecedented change. A skyrocketing population, climate change, an increasing trend towards city-living, and technological advancement like we’ve never seen before. It’s an exciting time to be alive. As the world’s largest food and beverage company, we’re asking what all this means for the future of food and agriculture. How will we contribute to feeding the 9 billion or more people that will be living on Earth in 2050? Who will grow and produce this food? Read the rest »

HELPING FAMILIES WITH THEIR PORTION CONTROL

Every parent wants their child to live a healthy life. And yet, most parents would agree that their youngsters deserve a small treat from time to time. At Nestlé, we believe that treats can be part of a balanced diet, when they are enjoyed in moderation. Passatempo is Brazil’s most beloved kids’ biscuit brands. Millions of children enjoy the delicious square, chocolate sandwiches every week. But, with childhood obesity on the rise, we want to encourage our consumers to stick to the recommended portion size of 30g. That’s just three biscuits. Read the rest »

GIVING NEW MUMS A HELPING HAND

From planning and pregnancy through to breastfeeding, bringing a new life into the world is an incredible journey filled with anticipation, excitement and moments of apprehension. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends exclusive breastfeeding during the first six months of life, followed by the introduction of nutritious and appropriate complementary foods along with sustained breastfeeding up to two years of age and beyond. At Nestlé, we support this WHO recommendation and are committed to promoting, supporting and protecting breastfeeding. We firmly believe that breast milk is the ideal nutrition for new-borns and infants. While Read the rest »

NESQUIK® STUDIOS

Nesquik Studios is a new digital and physical platform for parents to help their children use their creativity and imagination to realize their ideas and dreams. A key part of delivering the brand promise of ‘Nourishing Possibility’ is to directly address growing concerns about children’s’ lack of physical activity, the high sugar levels in kids’ diets, and the rise of childhood obesity. With 90% of kids saying they’d rather spend time indoors on the sofa using technology than outdoors, it doesn’t look like the problem is going to go away without direct action. We want to work with an external partner to find new ways to enco Read the rest »

A BETTER WAY OF DIAGNOSING DEFICIENCY

About a third of the world’s population suffers from micronutrient deficiency – a lack of essential vitamins and minerals such as iron, zinc and vitamin A. It’s a big problem in poor communities, and it can impact everything from physical and mental development to pregnancy and productivity. We want to create a service or tool that enables people all over the world to test if they have a micronutrient deficiency. Crucially, the solution must be non-invasive, easy to use, scalable and affordable. Read the rest »

WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF BOTTLED WATER?

We believe that bottled water helps people drink more water throughout the day, which is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. While our category today is inseparable from plastic, it does not have to remain that way. As the world’s largest bottled water company, Nestlé Waters is uniquely placed to shape a more sustainable future for this huge industry. We want to invent a dramatically new, additional approach that complements bottled water, creating a whole new lifecycle for this seemingly very simple product, no matter where it’s consumed – at home, in the office, on the go, or in a restaurant. It’s a huge ambition. Read the rest »

THE NESPRESSO SUSTAINABILITY EXPERIENCE

Brands that demonstrate a commitment to sustainability outperform those that don’t. Despite Nespresso’s considerable sustainability efforts, most consumers don’t perceive Nespresso as an ethically strong, sustainable brand. We want to work with an external partner to create an experiential platform that allows customers to experience and understand Nespresso’s sustainability initiatives and their positive impact towards improving social and environmental sustainability at farm level. The platform, which should work in both digital and retail, must be unique, credible and engaging. Read the rest »
